Estimation Algorithm for Autonomous Aerial Refueling Using a Vision Based Relative Navigation System. (August 2005) Roshawn Elizabeth Bowers, B.S., Texas A&M University Chair of Advisory Committee: Dr. John Valasek A new impetus to develop autonomous aerial refueling has arisen out of the growing demand to expand the capabilities of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). With autonomous aerial refueling, UAVs can retain the advantages of being small, inexpensive, and expendable, while offering… CONTINUE READING
